Shadow Bug is such a good game! It was released today and bought it right away and started playing it. Shadow Bug is a Platformer game where you are a small Ninja bug who can only walk to the left and right. You can only jump by attacking multiple enemies. This game has 36 worlds which are all hand drawn. After a couple of maps there is a sort of boss fight. I haven’t found any bugs in this game yet.

+ I love the art designs
+ Graphics are good
+ Fun storyline
+ Platformer with a twist
+ Music is good to listen to
+ Some parts are rather difficult to do

– The game begins without any introduction or title screen
– Had some trouble with the first boss fight, after a while you will find some solutions to defeat the boss

8.5/10 This game actually is quite good! It is a platformer but with a small twist. I enjoyed playing it a lot and I can’t wait to finish the whole game. This game is just €5.- on stream and it actually is worth more. You really need to play this game if you are a fan of platformer games! This game is a small gem in the world of the big platformer games!
